Abstract:
The programme of emergency recording carried out at No.4 Castle Hill, Cleobury Mortimer, revealed a sequence of deposits reflecting the changing usage of the site during the medieval and post-medieval periods. The uppermost deposits were identified as post-medieval garden soils probably contemporary with the sub-division of the castle site into enclosures, which appears to have occurred during the late 18th - early 19th century,. Beneath these garden soils, a series of silty sand and rubble deposits was encountered, generally interpreted as structural elements associated with the construction or consolidation of the castle motte, presumably intended to provide stability for the mound, which was particularly apparent within Section 5. Also of significance was a rubble slump identified within Section 1, which could possibly relate to the collapse of a revetment wall or structure that stood on or adjacent to the motte and was subsequently incorporated within the motte. The complete lack of artefactual evidence within these lower deposits prevents the establishment of a detailed chronological phasing for the site, the only datable material being a small assemblage of post-medieval ceramic sherds and CBM recovered from the uppermost garden soil deposits. Nevertheless, the recording programme provided an important opportunity to record in detail a sequence of deposits associated with the construction and subsequent consolidation of a medieval castle motte.
